    Exactly, by the way Arnie weighed in at 240lb +. Sloped shoulders and all.

    Where did I suggest it did ? I shouldn't try to second guess people if I were you ,you have enough trouble articulating the garbage that passes through your own "brain".

    When I boxed slope shoulders were thought of,[rightly or wrongly ,]as the sign of a puncher.
    No, I'm not too bright, but even when I'm asleep I'm two steps ahead of you Mongoosy!


    Those scars not healed yet?

    Yep that is the way I was taught and experienced the sloped shoulders are closer to the core I and make for some serious torque for a guy who could use that strength right......the sloped and rounded shoulders were a sign of hooking power not good to try them out on the inside if that isn't your strength

    What? How does gaining weight early in life make for wider bones?
    If the weight is somewhat muscle, then the weight bearing exercise may add density.
    But getting adequate nutrition & genetics determines how broad a bone structure is.

    The human skeleton usually stops growing in height & length in or by the late teens.
    Thickness tends to go a little later, but where is any evidence that it is at all common for this to continue after the early & middle twenties?
    Other tthan the rare exception.

    Tua & Tyson added much muscle. Having a bigger frame made this easier to maximize.
    This is the normal order of causation.

    Density isn't size enlargement.It's you who needs a lesson.

    Another one!

    All I know is if Orlin Norris was a similar height and reach to Tyson, Marciano and Tua and he was able to box almost as fat as Tuas most obese weights either side of Boxing at similar weights to Marciano and Tyson then it stands to reason that anything is possible. Orlin Norris proved it.

    Arnold had skinny legs compared with his upper body and tons of roids in his veins. The bodybuilders are manufactured bodies a lot of these guys are ectomorphs with inflated artificial bodies

    If you have to change the verbiage to "wider" to question my post, you are already headed in the wrong direction.

    Bones grow in volume until approx the age of 25 in males. Density growth in males continues as late as 35 until we reach peak bone mass. Both these things increase weight and the capacity for weight. Which is the crux of the argument.

    You are looking for an argument that isnt here. Unless you want to drag semantics of what is meant by "frame" though its obvious as hell i havent been discussing s lengthening or widening of bones.

    Arnold had proportioned legs in his early 70s prime, he was the GOAT for a reason.

    You are piggy backing on other posters like Master Blaster and its pathetic. The last guy you tried to ride into the sunset on this argument had to admit it was a misunderstanding. So now you are jumping on another poster who is making the same obvious mistake.

    I guess its better than celebrating typos. When your life sucks as bad as yours, you got to get any thrill you can, right?

    Arnold NEVER EVER HAD PROPORTIONED LEGS, there are a lot of bobybuilders bigger and with better proportions. The legs always were the weak point of Arnold.
    in fact he almost never made a leg pose
